Barcelona Still The World's Best, Says Atleti's Boss Simeone

Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone believes Barcelona “are still the best team in the world” ahead of Sunday’s La Liga showdown at Vicente Calderon.
"We went high up against them in the Copa del Rey and they scored two goals in 20 minutes,” the coach said.

“We did it in the second half and it was worth it. Barcelona are still the best team in the world and it depends on what they want to do.

“Now they have the enthusiasm of Madrid’s defeat and are fighting for the League, so whether we defend five metres back or forward, I’m expecting the best Barcelona.

“We’re focused on the Barcelona game and not looking beyond it. They’re moderately-direct rivals for third place or, if the league allows, something better, but it’s still very early."
